It was a wild and exciting night in Mosheim Thursday as Chuckey-Doak and West Greene split their Blue Ridge Athletic Conference basketball doubleheader.

The Lady Black Knights (7-15, 5-4 BRAC) held on for an exciting 54-48 victory. The game was delayed more than 15 minutes due to issues with the scoreboard.

The win locked up at least a third-place finish for the Chuckey-Doak girls in the District 2-AA standings.

In the nightcap, the Buffaloes earned their third win of the season in breathtaking fashion. The final score of 60-59 was not decided until the final horn sounded.

West Greene improves to 3-21 while the Black Knights fall to 12-14 on the year and 4-5 in the BRAC. It marked the first district win of the year for the Buffaloes.

Next up for West Greene is a road trip to North Greene tonight. Chuckey-Doak travels to South Greene Saturday.

Buffs Win Thriller

The boys contest might not have been a masterpiece, stylistically, but that does not mean it lacked drama or excitement.

The opening and closing quarters kept the fans on the edge of their seats. Those two quarters were the highest scoring quarters for both teams.

The first period featured nine lead changes and three ties. The fourth witnessed West Greene claw back and hold on for the victory.

The last lead for the Buffs before going ahead with about one minute left in the contest was late in the first quarter at 18-16.

"We knew coming in that (Chuckey-Doak) is a good team," said West Greene head coach Jesse Bible, who earned the first coaching victory of his young career. "We believe Coach (Sam) Broyles is one of the best coaches in this league. We knew we had to play hard."

The effort from both squads was there right to the end.

With just about five minutes remaining in the game, West Greene faced a 53-47 deficit. The team never quit, though, and went on a 13-6 run to close out the win.

"We have been preaching not to give up," Bible said. "We have lost some games at the end."

During that closing run, five different players scored for West Greene. Tyler Earley led the charge with five of 11 points in the final moments.

Tyler and his brother Tanner combined to score 25 points in the win. Jordan Fillers led all Buffaloes with 15 points.

Even with the strong push down the stretch from the Buffs, the Black Knights still had a chance to force overtime or win it in regulation.

With the Buffs leading in the final seconds, Chuckey-Doak
